"View of Cultus Mountain" LaConner , plein air painting by Robin Wiess

"View of Cultus Mountain" LaConner  8x12 oil on panel  Sold
The LaConner area is a plein air painters paradise!  Not only are there paintable views in every direction , there are also lots of places to pull off the road and set up.  I found this spot just past the round-about at the end of Morris Street.

I came back here twice, once at the end of the day when the late afternoon sun was setting the landscape a-glow....I'll have to try that one from the photo......but the more I paint outside the less I want to use photos!...=]

Gorgeous! You captured the expansive feel of the valley perfectly!

I love the way this painting glows. The pop of the red barn is perfect!The road thru the dirt is a nice bit, too.

You gotta come to Santa Fe area and paint the glow here. It is famous for the light. I think you could really do it justice.
